Undergraduate Exchanges

Undergraduate Exchanges

Each year, up to three undergraduate students from ANU and a similar number from IU whose academic interests include areas related to Asia will be selected to participate in a semester-length exchange. Finalists will have access to course work, research facilities, and leading scholars of the region while having the opportunity to live abroad. Students will pay their regular tuition and fees to their home institution and each university has on-campus accommodations available although students are responsible for paying fees associated with housing directly to the host university.

Application Process at ANU
